Beautiful hair is healthy hair, and we torture ours on a daily basis with heat styling, teasing, and coloring. Even if you think your hair is relatively healthy, the change of seasons can be hard on your strands. Celeb hair stylist Richard Collins says it’s crucial to remember to put moisture back into your hair. He does this for Hollywood’s hottest by regularly applying hair masks. A hydrating mask is not only an essential building block to gorgeous hair, but super calming and relaxing.
Kick off the holiday season by taking a cue from your favorite celebs and spend the night getting gorgeous with your girls. A favorite at-home treatment of Richard’s is Schwarzkopf Diamond Color Radiance and Illuminating Mask, to keep your color radiating through the dry, winter months. He suggests starting with clean, wet hair. Make sure to comb out any tangles and put a protective towel over your shoulders. Apply the mask to your hair; if you have fine or oily hair, only apply mask to the body of the hair, not the roots or scalp. For thicker or dry hair you can apply all over. Once you’re all masked up, it’s time to sit back, relax and refresh. Catch up with your girls over hors d’ourves and a champagne or sparkling cider holiday toast.
End the night with a hair themed holiday grab bag of bigger ticket items like styling tools and salon gift certificates or hand out a small hair accessory as a gift to each of your guests. A set of gold barrettes, a leather headband, or a lambskin pony wrap are all chic options. Nothing says friendship like bonding over beauty and what an amazing way to kick off the holiday season with your girls. So send out those evites, wrap those gifts, and grab your Schwarzkopf products because it’s time to celebrate!
